Testimonials

  • "Thank you to everyone who helps run this amazing website and service. I am a mom to a healthy and happy nine month old baby. I had planned to stay on my SSRI during my pregnancy and felt confident about my decision until I encountered resistance from multiple providers before birth. The expert help I got from you during this time was critical and I am so glad I found you. I wish that every healthcare professional a person might encounter before, during and after pregnancy was as educated, supportive and non-judgmental as your team." - Nela from NY
